    • [SHORTCUT OVERLAP] AltGr + E on Windows can no longer type Polish accented letter, Euro symbol, etc.

      As above.
      I can't write polish text because Zeplin opens every time I hit ALT(right) + E.

      • Zoom tool and wacom tablet

        I've got a problem with zoom tool and wacom tablet. When I activate zoom tool, and I'm trying to tap pen on the tablet to enlarge the canvas once time, it fits automaticly to 6400%. For example i want to fit canvas from 50% to 75%, but it zooms to 6400%. It is very irritating.
        When I tried to understand why it happens, i'm thinking that application see one extra micro move from the pen: First (correct one) is tapping and second one is micro 1px move (and then resize canvas to 6400%). This is result because tablet pen isn't…

            • Text shift in device preview

              Not sure how to even troubleshoot this. When using the font Adobe Clean, and viewing in Device Preview on iPhone, we are noticing that some weights show up roughly 5px lower than where they are in the file.

              I'd like to blame the font, but it works fine everywhere else. Just not Device Preview.

              • Assets reordering after creating a new symbol

                I was pretty excited with the latest update that I could organize my assets in an order that works best for me. I spent some time going through my current project in reorganizing my symbols and as soon as I created a new symbol the order got all jumbled up. I went through and reorganized them again, later on created a new symbol and once again they got jumbled up again.

                I was excited for this improvement but disappointed it isn't working out.

                  Hi Sarah: Thanks again fro sharing your project. I totally understand and realize this renders the functionality not usable for you given your workflow. The team is working on a fix that will be available in our next release.

                  Sincere apologies for the inconvenience,
                  Nina

                • Editing character styles doesn't apply it to all characters

                  This bug looked to be resolved back in November but I believe it's back. I have steps to recreate the bug.

                  XD Version:
                  5.0.12.8

                  Steps to Reproduce Issue:
                  1. Create a character style.
                  2. Create text block, type anything.
                  3. Apply the character style from Step 1.
                  4. Go back to the text block that was created in Step 2 and add new text.
                  5. Edit your character style. You should see everything working as it should.
                  6. Go back to the text block that was created in Step 2 and add new text again.
                  7. Edit your character style.…

                  • Some elements of an icon are missing in the exported svg file.

                    1. XD for Windows (3.1.12.2)

                    I exported an icon which consists of different elements. Some of them won't show in the exported file. I suspect, that this might have something to do with the fact that they are made of an union.
                    I have attached 3 pics, (how/what I exported, the result, and the element missing)

                      • 'align to pixel grid' changes SVG appearance

                        SVGs seem to change shape when I select ”Align to pixel grid”
                        1) Drag and drop an SVG file exported from Photoshop.
                        2) Make it half the size in XD
                        3) Right click the SVG and ”Align to pixel grid”
                        4) SVG looks strange. See screenshot.

                        • Missing image when importing from the CC Libraries

                          Version of Adobe XD: 8.0.22.11 (macbook pro)

                          In the library, I have a PNG photo inside a circle (see attached image) created in Illustrator. I want to add this element to a prototype in Adobe XD.

                          Expected result: the image will look exactly like in Illustrator, inside the circle and same measurement.

                          Actual result: I can only see the circle empty, no image, or the image has been moved and it is not inside the circle.

                          • scaling with responsive or not

                            When you scale down an icon with the size palette the result is different from scaling down using the image corners.

                            It should always be as I change the size from the corners

                              Hi @Andrea,

                              Thanks for the extra information. This is a known bug that we are working to fix.

                              As a workaround, you can select the icon in the canvas, then go to Responsive Resize in the PI and click the switch to the left (Off). Then you should be able to resize it without breaking it apart.

                              If you wish to keep the icon responsive (i.e., fix a direction), then after turning off Responsive Resize for the icon, group it, and then the group can have directions fixed while resizing.

                              Best regards,
                              Joe

                              • Export bug - Hiding XD during export process

                                During file export:

                                Hiding XD (Cmd + H) while the export progress bar shows, prevents the progress bar from hiding (even after the export has finished).

                                - Clicking the "X" next to the progress bar does nothing
                                - Force Quit and reopen is the only way to get back to the document

                                • Signing Out From Xd Does Not Sign Out From Other Adobe Apps (#51975)

                                  When running both XD and other Adobe applications, signing out of XD does not sign out of the other applications. As a workaround sign out from the other application directly by selecting Help > Sign Out

                                  • The Sign In Dialog Launches Behind The Xd Launch Screen At Alternate Clicks (#49724)

                                    When signing in to a user Adobe ID from within Adobe XD the Sign In dialog box appears behind the Welcome Screen. As a workaround click on the sign in dialog to bring it to the front.

                                    La boîte de dialogue de connexion s’ouvre derrière l’écran de lancement de XD en cas de clics non prévus
                                    Lorsque vous vous connectez à un Adobe ID d’utilisateur depuis Adobe XD, la boîte de dialogue de connexion s’affiche derrière l’écran Bienvenue. Pour contourner le problème, cliquez sur la boîte de dialogue de connexion pour la ramener au premier plan.

                                    • Activating Stroke Alignment Buttons Loses Tab Focus (#46508)

                                      When using the tab key to navigate between items in the Property Inspector the button will not activate. Clicking on the button directly resolves the issue.

                                      Le fait d’activer les boutons d’alignement au contour entraîne la perte de l’onglet ciblé
                                      Lorsque vous utilisez la touche de tabulation pour naviguer entre les éléments dans l’inspecteur Propriétés, le bouton ne s’active pas. Cliquer sur le bouton directement permet de résoudre le problème.

                                      Beim Aktivieren der Schaltflächen für die Konturausrichtung geht der Tabulator-Fokus verloren
                                      Wenn Sie mit der Tabulatortaste zwischen Objekten im Eigenschafteninspektor navigieren, wird die Schaltfläche nicht aktiviert. Durch direktes Klicken auf…

                                      • marking of fields doesnt work

                                        For example:
                                        If you have an Object selected and you want to change the radius for the rounded corners.
                                        If you try to mark the value in Object inspector as you would a Text in Notepad or any Input field via click and then mark the text by moving mouse left (or right if you clicked left of the text).
                                        You are loosing the focus at all, if you then enter any value you change the opacity but not the thing you are trying to enter.

                                        breaks my flow every time.
